Welcome to my place within Honest Gamers. I like retrogaming and wrestling. Hope we can be friends in gaming. I am also an amateur photographer, game developer enthusiast, and cartoonist, and I am a fan of 80s music as well.
Third time isn't always a charm
While this third chapter on the Double Dragon series was not as bad as some may think, it has been the least liked sequel out of the arcade trilogy, and also on console adaptations. The game was such a distant departure from the games that preceded it and while it had some positive quirks, there is no denying that it could be considered the black sheep of the series overall in all aspects.
Oh man, I am so trying to catch up on games I have either saved on PS2 and or emulation. As stated before, I could not get into my PSX emulation library because said emulator refuses to work with this crappy Desktop PC I could barely afford to acquire, so I am starting *anew* with said RPGs I was trying to finish there. Luckily, those on other emulators including SNES and GBA were intact so I can resume my quest in accomplishing said games. So far, these are games I am currently going through:
Final Fantasy 10
Final Fantasy 12
Legend of Legia 2
Wild Arms 3
Beyond The Beyond
Final Fantasy VII
Feda Emblem of Justice
A GREAT animated adaptation of the titular night hunting series
I cannot contain my excitement over the fact that I get to finally experience Netflix's animated Castlevania series. Now on its talked 3rd Season, it had surprised many expectations from all those who experienced it when it came out couple years back. I am very lucky I was able to check the first season (a whole total of 4 episodes) on DVD after finding out the city's library catalog had a copy somewhere around. As it is, I do not have the budget to get such luxuries which had me blue until I was able to at least check the series this way.
First game finished.
After the various tumultuous problems I had to deal with, was able to go back to games I was currently finishing and BoF for SNES was one. I will point out Jade, the boss you face before Tyr was more of a problem than the final battle I faced. I would challenge Tyr once again without having to use Agni to see how difficult she would really be, but I can say with Jade having a one hit spell instant kill really did a number on me the entire time I tried defeated him. Even with the ultimate spell to beat her, it took quite a number of hits to bring Tyr down. She had quite the healthy number of HP as a final boss.
It was a good run with a great game. Will go on playing the sequel soon and get to the other two sequels on the PSX.
Thoughts on the fighting game which was released on various systems in the 90s
Double Dragon V was published by Tradewest who was responsible for the first game in the series adapted for NES, so I guess it would count as "canon" if you accept that fact. Released for various systems, DDV was made into a fighting game rather than a beat'em up as most of the games in the series are known for. This was not the first time a Double Dragon fighting game was made however.
Giving a gaming youtuber no quarter
Recently Social Media and youtube have been trashing relentlessly on Projared, a gaming youtuber in the veins of AVGN and the like. The reason behind it came about when his wife would tweet about finding about his infidelity with Commander Holly, who is part of the youtube channel Game Grumps. The incident came into light after Projared's then wife announced his infidelity on twitter.
The controversy even dragged another youtuber named Jontron, who seemingly had nothing to do with Projared's infamous drama yet some feel he is just as bad for having made racist comments about certain ethnicities at some point.
Stress not needed
Animal Crossing is one of those games that I simply lose interest after I play it for a while, kind of like The Sims game series. I simply don't see the point about a game that makes me feel pressured to pick it up after an hour or less because I MUST do something in said game. I still remember the time I tried The Sims on PlayStation 2. The only thing I ever did at the beginning was cleaning up a seemingly endless pile of trash that kept appearing at my character's house every two damn seconds. I ragequit it and sold the game immediately. I stopped caring about said series altogether. The only game I cared enough to play was The Urbz, which had a more considerate way to have you play the game whenever you felt like and have your Sim live their life as they would want without wanting
